michelle obama will baltimore. vice-president joe biden will visit new hampshire. republican nominee mitt romney is also on the road after campaigning in florida yesterday. today he will speak in las vegas. his running mate will visit new orleans. ann romney will campaign in nebraska. a centreville man wants to know thehis protest against president is drawing so much attention. that he was not invoking lynching. he said it was a nod to clint eastwood's speech at the republican convention. becausethat he hung it people were stealing his other signs. but i feel like it is an attack on free speech. it's like a little of nothing and they build it into something. is awarecret service and it's under investigation. iswe don't yet know who run the country, but plans are underway for inauguration day. california speaker john boehner and house minority leader nancy hammered away at the nails in the platform that to. be used the president will take his oath monday, january 21. a private ceremony will be held the day before. >> the anticipation finally coming to an end. day-to-day apple fans have bee
in case you only saw michele. number one -- >> that was president obama speaking to a riled up crowd in woodbridge, virginia. michael hastings has been on the campaign trail with the president. the president is up by at least five points according to some polls, higher margins and others in virginia, the confederacy he won in 2008. and early voting starts in the state today. >> right. >> we saw some -- i'm going to say swagger-ific behavior on display at the stump and mention of mr. romney and victims. of course alluding to romney's infamous 47% video. >> pretty explicit alution to that video. over the past three weeks the obama campaign has been feeling good post-convention, they survived this libya incident. yesterday was a stumble but i think they've been feeling quite confident and you see it in his demeanor, you see it in the crowds pretty excited out there. and i think that's how it's going to -- i mean i think you know what they don't want -- i saw bob woodward say -- talking about the october surprise and i think that libya moment, there was this sense of oh, my gosh, is this
and one can only imagine, i mean if michele obama did the same thing it would be -- i mean the human cry would be massive. >> i think it's just a very difficult thing to say essentially at this point in the race. you had mitt romney say a version of this in an interview with chuck todd, wouldn't it be nice if we could have an agreement where essentially we don't attack each other, just talk about ideas and things like taxes and my business experience and all this stuff is off the table, his business experience is what he has put out as his qualifications for running so that's going to get looked at and analyzed and be a part of the conversation. and so i think that we've just reached that point in the campaign where i think it's very intense, i think that both sides are feeling a lot of pressure but the side not doing as well is going to be more visible about it. >> the pressure is definitely on around the table. we will come back after the break and seems few people or events can bring washington together these days. that is an understatement indeed. this week burmese pro-democracy lead
, the first lady, michelle obama, perhaps the president's secret weapon, making, what, 11 visits to north carolina since 2009? talk about mrs. obama's appeal there. >> well, she has stressed military families and helping them and, of course, north carolina has a very strong military presence with fort bragg and camp lejeune, the marine base. so military issues are very important. it's a way -- she's much more popular than her husband is here, and it's a way to portray herself and to portray, sell the obama administration in a very nonpartisan way because it has broad support, it goes across party lines, of course. arthel: and then, rob, you mentioned that 2008 election. of course, the obama/biden ticket getting 49.70% of the votes there, the mccain/palin ticket, 9.48. so close -- 39.48. so close. so i ask you, what is it about the politics of north carolina that makes it such an enigma? >> well, there's a couple things going on here. first of all, it's a upper-tier southern state, it's much more like virginia than a deep south state, so it's always been much more moderate. we've had 20 ye
